National Wear Red Day

You know that heart disease and stroke are still the No. 1 and No. 3 killers of women. But did you know more women die of cardiovascular disease and stroke than the next four causes of death combined, including all forms of cancer? Did you also know that 90 percent of women have one or more risk factors for developing heart disease, which if controlled could reduce their risk?

These statistics are alarming and give reason to believe that heart disease or stroke has already touched you or someone you love.

February 4 is National Wear Red day. Who’s Going Red? All across the country, people have been wearing red to show their support for Go Red for Women and to help raise awareness of heart disease. But it’s not just individuals who Go Red. Companies are joining the movement and so are entire cities!

In celebration of Heart Month and National Wear Red Day, the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women and Macy’s invite you to grab your red stilettos and strut for your heart!

Great prizes provided by Macy’s and Huntington Hospital including first to strut across the finish line.

Free blood pressure screenings to be provided on site by Huntington Hospital

I care that heart disease is the number one killer of women. I care because heart disease interrupted my life, big time, more than once.

Over 400,000 lost their lives to heart disease last year. We must learn our risk factors and we can do this by attending events in our area. Watch for them this upcoming month of February. Mark your calendar and make time to attend.

I support my local American Heart Association. I am Lois Trader, the LA Heart Health Examiner.
